Marriott Rewards has nearly the same MegaBonus promotion offer that ends tomorrow starting up again in two weeks for one free night after two stays from May 15 to September 2, 2013.
Marriott Rewards Unexpected Bonus promotion registration is required by July 31, 2013.
I called the summer promotion MegaBonus in the title, even though Marriott is calling the next promotion “Unexpected Bonus”. There is really nothing unexpected about this offer compared to all the other recurring free night offers from Marriott Rewards over the past few years.
My California Adventure Marriott road trip this past week apparently placed me in the upper tier of the free night offer since my offer is for one free category 1-5 reward certificate every two stays with a maximum two free nights.
This is the first time in years that my offer was not for a Category 1-4 free night certificate.
Keep in mind that over 50% of the current 700+ category 4 hotels are moving up to category 5 on May 16, 2013.
My Marriott Unexpected Bonus offer.
Marriott Rewards has targeted offers for this promotion. Here are five other different bonus offers mentioned in this FlyerTalk thread.
35,000 bonus points: Earn 25,000 points after 15 nights and another 10,000 bonus points after 20 nights May 15-Sep 2, 2013.
35,000 bonus points: Earn 25,000 points after 15 nights and another 2,000 points per night for up to 10 additional nights.
45,000 bonus points: Earn 35,000 points after 20 nights and another 10,000 bonus points after 25 nights May 15-Sep 2, 2013.
55,000 bonus points: Earn 35,000 points after 20 nights and another 2,000 points per night for up to 10 additional nights.
Up to 3 Free nights at Category 1-4 hotels: Earn one free night certificate for a category 1 to 4 hotel after every two stays. Maximum of 3 free nights.
Up to 2 Free nights at Category 1-5 hotels: Earn one free night certificate for a category 1 to 5 hotel after every two stays. Maximum of 2 free nights.
You can log into Marriott Rewards and find your target offer at Promotion Central. Many members report luck in changing their target offer to one of the others, although changing a Category 1-4 target offer to cat 1-5 offer may prove more problematic.
